Prescription Monitoring Program (PMP) is what happens when the
U.S. Government takes control of healthcare. Because of the
PMPs in 38 states, there could be as many as 19 million citizens
who cannot get treatment for a chronic medical disorder requiring
a Schedule II - IV controlled substance, leaving these patients
disabled. PMP has resulted in a regression of the healthcare
system in the U.S., forcing its victims to self-medicate using
illegal drugs. Thus, in the 21st century, the U.S.
Government has become the deadly enemy of U.S. citizens,
approaching a majority today that is compelled to "take back
3 years, I watched physicians as they cowered away from providing
me with treatment for narcolepsy and ADHD. Two physicians
prescribed anti-depressants. Anti-depressants do not
suppress the daytime sleep attacks associated with
narcolepsy. Instead, they exacerbate the
problem. Prescribing anti-depressants for narcolepsy
is drug misuse, producing the same ugly results as drug
abuse. Physicians didn't care that I might be a danger to
myself and others when I drove my truck, falling asleep at the
wheel. When I mentioned this, they suggested that I
surrender my driving privileges. It's common sense
that what these physicians were doing would normally be a criminal
act. Under the current mangled and twisted U.S. drug policy,
prescribing the wrong drug is not a crime even if the patient dies
or becomes a threat to others.
Use Education starts with sensible drug policy. Today's drug
policy is merely a theatrical event that targets decent
law-abiding citizens as much as it targets those who seriously
undermine common sense laws. Every year, children,
adolescents, and teenagers die because they have zero
comprehension of how powerful drugs can be. It's not much
different with adults. Whether we like it or not, we live in
a drug culture. Drugs heal but too much of a drug can have
catastrophic results on the entire nation.
of our planet's surface is covered by a substance that is both
dangerous and yet life-giving. It's called water. At
one time, long after our ancestors evolved from this substance,
civilizations had to confront it. It's very natural that
tribes spent many years hindered by this substance when rains
flooded their valleys. It's quite certain that children and
adults fell into the water and drowned. It's very
likely that tribes protected their young by forbidding anyone to
go near the stretch of water that invaded their land.
were not the ones who obeyed the laws and stayed clear of the
water. Then, like now, heroes are those who take
risks. Eventually, someone
brave enough, learned to keep themselves buoyant in the
water. Today, we would be alarmed if we heard that these
people who took the risk might have been punished for their
crime. What crime? They were only helping their society by
doing something that is natural to man... exploring...
time passed, there were those outlaws who became organized in the
way they moved themselves through the water. They could
actually travel through the fluid by stroking it. Perhaps another member of a tribe discovered
that certain types of wood floated on the surface of this fluid. Soon, those tribes that allowed their people to
experiment rather than extending rules forbidding access to the
water were the progressive tribes that conquered land by moving
themselves across the water.
It is unlikely that anyone waged a war against the water.
How stupid! It is unlikely that anyone taught their kids how
to drown. Again, how stupid!
or later, humans incorporated the water into their lives. They respected the tides and the currents as acts of
nature that could kill their people, but they overcame their fears
by teaching the children of the tribe how to swim.
we live in a world of chemical substances that are in our homes,
in our air, and in our bodies. We manufacture them to
improve our health... to make other goods... to help us resolve
problems. It's absolutely and positively absurd that we've been waging a war against these products.
It's wrong that those who take risks are punished.
